The models of cars considered in the present manual can be equipped with system of additional safety (SRS).

Onboard electric equipment). It is easy to distinguish an electrical wiring of a chain of SRS on yellow color of isolation.

Bodies of the models considered in the present manual have a frame design. The bearing frame consists of two longitudinal side beams executed in the form of steel pipes of rectangular section and connected among themselves by cross-pieces. Cross beams are welded to longitudinal, or fasten to them by means of rivets or bolts. Body assembly is fixed on a frame by means of the support equipped with rubber pillows and can be completely dismantled.
